In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Venture out of the city with trips to Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Haleiwa (Pupukea Beach Park, Sunset Beach Park, &more) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's much more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

You can plan Honolulu trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Honolulu is an approximately 20.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. You'll gain 18 hours traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Kuala Lumpur in June, expect nights in Honolulu to be about the same, around 27°C, while days are a bit cooler, around 35°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) early enough to travel to Lahaina.

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Step out of Lahaina to go to Paia and see Ho'okipa Beach Park, which is approximately 52 minutes away. There's still lots to do: cruise along Hana Highway - Road to Hana, tour the pleasant surroundings at Ka'anapali Beach, see the interesting displays at Whalers Village Museum, and walk around Lahaina Banyan Court.

To see maps, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, read our Lahaina online tour itinerary planner.

Traveling by flight from Honolulu to Lahaina takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and ferry; or do a combination of flight and bus. In June, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) early enough to travel to Kailua-Kona.
